I would start by attaching it to your computer and seeing if the phone boots up.

If it doesn't there is not much you can do without taking the phone about. A used iPhone 4S can be had for under $100. You could also go with an iPhone 5/5s and get something a little newer without spending a lot either.

If there is no apparent damage other than the screen now not coming on its possible that a connection inside may just have come loose. You can find many tutorials online about how to open up your iphone otherwise take it to a repairer who can take a look at for you. Without actually looking at it there isn't much else that I can suggest other than what has been said above.

Connect it to your computer to see if you aer able to access the phone at all. If yes, the screen is damaged. You can study some Videos on youtube to see how you could replace the screen. Good luck.

My wifi wont turn on my iphone 4S why


common problem with iphone 4s. Means your wifi chip is disconnected from circuit board or defective. Some small iphone shops fix it by resoldering, but under some conditions it may happen again. High/low temperatures, drops and so on. If phone is still under warranty - apple will replace it free.

One of the internal connections likely broke or came loose. Did you take it to an Apple store? They should be able to diagnose it and tell you what it will take to fix it.

Corrupted software

It isn't often that Apple gives specific directions about how to fix your problem! Restoring the iPhone 4S will erase everything on it, so make sure everything on the iPhone 4S is stored elsewhere prior to restoring. To restore, connect your iPhone 4S to a computer with iTunes installed. Click "Restore" on the iPhone 4S summary page (click on your iPhone icon on the left menu to find this page). Follow the directions to restore. If your iPhone 4S displays the text "Please wait. Very Low Battery," leave it plugged in. This charges the iPhone 4S enough to be able to restore. If the iPhone 4S hangs on this screen for long periods of time, you may need a new battery.

Force restore mode

If your iPhone 4S is hanging with an Apple logo, or exhibiting some other software problem that prevents iTunes from recognizing it, you can force it into recovery/restore mode and then use iTunes to restore the software.
If the device is powered off, plug one end of your USB cable into the iPhone 4S and leave the other end disconnected. Press down on the Home button, and keep holding it down while you plug the USB cable into your computer. After 5-10 seconds, you should see a "Please Connect to iTunes" image on the iPhone 4S, and iTunes should prompt you to restore the software; follow the prompts and the instructions given above.
If the device is powered on, hold down both the power and home buttons until the device reboots and displays the "Connect to iTunes" image (generally, 5-15 seconds).
God bless you

I suggest you take your broken Iphone to a cell phone repair shop.
Get a quote for the repair then you can decide whether to go ahead with the repair or get a new Iphone.

I dropped my model No. A1241 phone and the touch screen doesn't work but it has no cracks. how can I fix it?


not having a crack on the screen doesnt mean your touchscreen will work. you said you drop your phone, it has a great possibility that it cause an internal damage to some of the microchip inside your phone that controls the sensors of your touchscreen.need to reheat the microchip inside it. open your phone and try to check for the microchip near the flex from the board of your phone going to your screen. then reheat it, but dont move it.
